Laxton House

Oundle's day pupils join Laxton House. Day pupils currently make up approximately one-fifth of the School's total numbers, with boys and girls in almost equal proportion. Many day pupils join Oundle from Laxton Junior School, which is co-educational from four years of age.

Laxton's buildings occupy the attractive churchyard site of the original Guild School, which Oundle's founder, Sir William Laxton, attended. They consist of the Cloisters, used for daily registration and other functions, the Long Room, used for additional assemblies, concerts and lectures, and common rooms. A cafeteria system provides lunch in the Laxton Dining Room.

Mrs Guise has taught Mathematics at Oundle for many years. Before becoming Head of Laxton she was the Housemistress in New House and Head of Mathematics.

Mrs Viv Gascoigne In September 2015, Mrs Guise will be succeeded by Mrs Viv Gascoine, who returns to Laxton after fourteen years as a Housemistress in Dryden House. Mrs Gascoine teaches Religious Studies. She previously spent eleven years as Head of Junior Years in Laxton, and has two grown-up children, both of whom attended Laxton.
